One of the worst things you can do when using Accumulator Generator – or indeed matched betting in general – to make risk free money, is be greedy.
Why? Well because the chances are, you will stand out like a beacon to the bookmakers, and your accounts will soon get closed, or what’s also known as Gubbed.
For example, William Hill offer a £20.00 refund every day under the terms of their ‘Acca Five‘ offer. If you place £20.00 a day on a Five-Fold, the chances are that you will stand out, and they would regard you as a risky account, basically they will brand you as an arber or a matched bettor – which they hate.
Bookmakers don’t like people who profit from their offers, they like Punters who lose money hand over fist. If you are placing 3 to 4 Five-Fold or Six-Fold bets a day that are losing, they will love you and keep your account open forever.
If they suspect that you are shrewd and trying to milk the system though, they will close your account without hesitation, and you have lost that source of income.
How Do You Avoid This And Look Like A Mug Punter?
It is virtually impossible to avoid having an account closed at some time or another if you are good at matched betting, all you can do is try and keep them going for as long as possible, and by doing that, you need to look natural.
One way I find to do this is to not max out the refund offers. Going back to the William Hill example I gave above, just place one bet at the weekend, and one when there is a decent mid-week fixture list. And don’t do it at £20 (the maximum refund amount).
There are loads of bookmakers around, and most of them offer acca insurance. So instead of hammering one bookmaker, spread it across a load of them. Only place bets of around 50% to 75% of the maximum refund amount, and try and do them all over the weekend (or if there’s major fixtures in midweek), the times of the week when the majority of acca bets are placed.
You are far more likely to look natural if you are placing your acca bet on the major leagues across a Saturday and Sunday of one weekend, rather than having one game Monday, one on Tuesday, and three the following Saturday.
If you are looking to have £200.00 worth of acca bets a week, target which bookmakers you will use for certain amounts, and spread your £200.00 across numerous bookies. Flip the amounts around week to week, try not to become monotonous.
Other ways to make it look like you are a mug punter and not attempting to play the system, is to put more teams in your acca than the minimum amount (6 teams when it is a minimum of 4). It might mean you miss out on the occasional free bet, but using the system probably, you won’t lose money doing this.
On occasions put more money on than the maximum refund, that can possibly put bookies of the scent and make you look like a mug.
Also, if you have a stinker one day, and all five (for example) of your acca selections lose, maybe try placing another one immediately after to make yourself look like a mug punter chasing your losses.
Another tip is to not use bookmakers who are linked and – most probably – use the same software, for example Coral and Ladbrokes are linked (so are Paddy Power and Betfair), so don’t place the exact same acca bets with Coral and Ladbrokes, as that may well get flagged up.
Try doing Casino offers from Profit Maximiser, or cashing in new customer offers from Monday to Friday instead, and by the way, always maximise the new customer offers, I would imagine virtually everybody does. Although on the flip side, you may look like a mug punter immediately if you don’t maximise a new accounts offer – that’s a decision for the individual
